I enjoyed this bottle at Poechenellekelder in Brussels, served in a lambic glass.
The color is dark golden with thick white head fine bead with no lace, clarity is thickly hazed. The smell is a mix of floral and tea-like herbal notes with a earhty and light lemony sour odor with slight tropical accent and light funk. The feel is moderately strong and sour with medium high carbonation with gentle sweet element and light alcohol in the feel with mild lactic acidity with dry clean finish.
The taste is great -very tangy with lemony and light sweet flavor with a subtle funkiness and gentle alcohol considering it is 8% it is pretty faint with slight woody accent and mild tannin with more lemony juicy taste like sparkling sour lemonade with a nice dry alcohol augmented finish with light lactic acid continuing on after the dry tangy finish. Overall a wonderful gueuze with a little more sourness than most and alcohol yet that is not apparent in the taste I really loved having this on the last day of our Anniversary trip to Belgium

Bottle opens with a loud pop. Slightly hazy golden color with a large effervescent head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Just a little spotty lacing is left down the glass. Carbonation is very active and almost looks like soda.
Funky barnyard aroma. Horse sweat and earth make up the majority of the aroma.
Sort of a musty mushroom umami flavor with a strong earthy component. Faint fruit and bread notes. Mildly tart. A little alcohol flavor and warmth as this is a large beer for the style.
Light and effervescent body. Nice for a funky tart beer.
A nice affordable, readily available gueze.

Clear golden body with a creamy white head that sticks around.
Aroma is musty, leafy, and a slight cheese. More funk than fruit.
This seems to rely more on the funk. Not much tartness going on. Wood and musty funkiness. Green grape and citric fruit.
Ample prickly carbonation but not like Vat 44. The body is almost medium.
Definitely the best Boon geuze I've had.

375 mL bottle, served in a tulip.
A- Pours with a quarter inch of whitish head that goes settles to a cap within five minutes. The body is a very murky yellow-orange.
S- The nose is lightly funky and tart.
T- Very earthy character, but sour and crisp as well. Not overbearingly tart. A light oakiness balances things out.
M- Medium body and bubbly, crisp carbonation.
O- Not my go-to style by any means, but this was a tasty brew to mix things up.
